ALBUM PREMIERE: CSS’ ‘La Liberacion’

by Accidental Bear

“We just wanted to be over the top,” singer Lovefoxxx tells SPIN. “We would be very exuberant [in the studio] and not think of how to do it live. This was the only rule that we had.” With that said they may skate a fine line of trying to hard. Being unaware of your ‘over the topness’ is key to be successful at it.  When there are ‘board meetings’ involved in image consulting, there is a need for being cautious of authenticity. CSS has the beats that allow us to breathe easy with power dance songs. You could care less if they are naked because CSS’s music is rock solid.  Mike Enders

Brazilian dance rock quintet CSS arrived on the global scene in 2006 with a handful of playful jams and seemingly boundless onstage energy. It’s reassuring to know that they’ve lost none of that spirit on their third album, La Liberacion, which hits stores August 23. Experience it for yourself: the entire album is streaming here exclusively.

A Canadian comic has to pay nearly $16,000 to a lesbian he heckled during a stand-up act at a Vancouver restaurant three years ago, according to  The Vancouver Sun.

Guy Earl was ordered to pay the money to Lorna Pardy for harassing her and her girlfriend during his act. The restaurant owner was ordered to pay Pardy $7,500.

Earle says he plans to appeal the ruling, saying all he did was insult audience members who insulted him first. He said Pardy threw a drink in his face before he insulted her, and he denied much of what he was accused of saying.
